"Romanushaus" Architecture / Historical Sites Tip by Leipzig

Named after the former Mayor of Leipzig, Franz Conrad Romanus. Built by Gregor Fuchs in 1701/04 for Mayor Romanus, who used funds from the city coffers to pay for the building. When this was discovered, he was sent to the Koenigstein Fortress near Dresden by August dem Starken (August the Strong) where he died.
The great German playwright Friedrich Schiller was known to frequent the cafe which now occupies part of the building.
